Photos and videos of school events
An Opening Ceremony - Kawanga Whare - was held this morning at 5.30am. A group of about 100 consisting of children and staff from Bayswater School and Wilson School, families and visitors participated and enjoyed breakfast together afterwards.
On Friday afternoon, we were visited by long-time local resident Danny Watson and some of his family. Danny is part of the trust which runs the dojo (martial arts hall) and ceramic studio up the road from school. Danny has very kindly offered his services as a kaumatua for our school and it was lovely to welcome him.
Our Learning Pathways in 2014 focussed on Sustainable Communities Through Kai. It culminated with a Communication of Learning to our community in the form of a performance called Roimata Toroa.
In term two the whole school collaborated in celebrating Matariki, and our learning about Healthy Communities through Kai, with a hangi. The children brought food each day and peeled the vegies, the parents prepared and cooked the food, the dads laid the hangi, the teachers stayed overnight to continue with the preparation of the food and to watch the lighting and suervision of the hangi. The whole school cheered when the hangi was open and the racks of food brought out! We fed over 200 people. What a fantastic event it was... we all want to do it again soon!
